What is a VB.VJE?
There are actually several different types of Trojan Horses. However, they usually have the same objective - the theft of your data and information on your computer. The VB.VJE Trojan is one of these, a type of information stealing Trojan, which sadly can easily go undetected by the user. As mentioned, this type of malware program can easily be installed on a computer without a user's knowledge and it may only be some odd behavior of the computer system or some files that may cause a user to wonder what's going on.
This particular malware is a part of the Windows System 32 (or Win32)-type Trojans, which are targeted at Microsoft Windows computers and systems. Again, a computer system can get this virus by either downloading/installing questionable programs or viewing questionable sites; usually a user's computer is not up to date on their antivirus programs or their browser settings are extremely low, disrupting usual warnings about websites or downloads that are being encountered.
In an odd twist, sometimes antivirus programs will report false positives in regards to these malicious threats. A false positive is when an antivirus program sees a safe or legal program or application that is installed on the computer as a threat and will report that there is a possible virus in the system. This may happen because of an update to the software or a known problem with one application has been solved, but not yet picked up by the antivirus program.
Many users of the free AVG antivirus program reported this after the installation of an otherwise safe download, like the Mozilla Firefox browser. The path usually shows within the D drive, which on most computers is the CD/DVD ROM drive. AVG acknowledged the issue and has steps for users to determine and fix false positives.
